Ap 702797144617

WESTOVER, Md. – Somerset County School Officials have announced that they will temporarily close Princess Anne Elementary and Greenwood Elementary schools for in-person learning for two weeks to prevent a potential COVID-19 outbreak.

We’re told the closure will take effect tomorrow, October 30th, and continue through Friday, November 13th. The decision was made due to the number of recently reported positive cases from occupants in both schools, in combination with receiving notice from families that several students from both schools are now self-quarantining due to developing symptoms.

All students receiving in-person instruction at these schools will transition to virtual learning for the two week period. During the closure, school meals will be available for curbside pickup at Greenwood Elementary School for affected families.

At this time, both schools are scheduled to reopen for in-person learning on Monday, November 16th.
